In his best-selling Strictly English Simon Heffer explained how to write and speak our language well. In Simply English he offers an entertaining and supremely useful A-Z guide to frequent errors, common misunderstandings and stylistic howlers. What is the difference between amend and emend , between imply and infer , and between uninterested and disinterested ? When should one put owing to rather than due to? Why should the temptation to write actually , basically or at this moment in time always be strenuously resisted? How does one use an apostrophe correctly, ensure that one understands what alibi really means, and avoid the perils of the double negative?

With articles on everything from punctuation to tabloid English to adverbs and adjectives , Simply English is the essential companion for anyone who cares about the language and wants to use it correctly.
